Eric The Unready Legend Entertainment Company 1993

This is a parody of the fantasy genre in general, though it parodies numerous other topics as well, ranging from Star Trek to Zork. The game engine uses an interactive fiction interface, although unlike most IF games, a graphical display of the player's location and viewpoint is provided. In contrast to the heady Time Quest, Bob Bates lets loose his lighter side in this side-splitting medieval adventure starring the incredibly accident-prone knight Eric the Unready. Just about every famous person, things, or fiction is at the mercy of his razor-sharp parody pen in this game, from Star Trek to the The Monty Pythons. One of the (many) great things that make playing it a blast is the tremendous variety the game offers, both in locations and types of puzzles. The game is loosely divided into "day," each of which is marked by hilarious cut-scenes and parody newspaper that recaps Eric's misadventures in the previous day and pokes fun at more people and objects than you can shake a stick at. The objects, locations, and puzzles in each day are self-contained, and as a mark of superior game design similar to LucasArts games. You'll be laughing from the start to the finish as you help Eric along one misadventure after another. A CD version adds cinematic animation, stunning hi-res Super VGA graphics, and an awesome soundtrack.
